Contractor faces OSHA fines for lack of fall protection for roofing workers

The cost of not having fall protection for employees working at heights of 6 feet or higher outweighs the cost of providing proper safety equipment

- At a Naples, Florida residential work site, a Fort Myers-based roofing company was cited by OSHA for exposing employees to dangerous falls

- Facing $91,456 in penalties, the company has 15 business days to comply, request a conference with OSHA's area director, or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

- Follows similar violations cited at another work site just one month earlier. This is this contractor's second penalty after a citation for the same hazards in Odessa, Florida in June 2018.
